Verdict

Christmas In Usa returned a clear winner at Ayr recently but carries 6lb extra and that was his first success over timber in 25 attempts. The less-exposed CAPTAIN KURT is preferred now handicapping having placed in maiden company at Kelso last time given this doesn’t look the strongest of contests. Emissaire failed to figure at Newcastle on his handicap bow but Pads has slipped down the weights and finished closer over these hurdles recently.
